We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"We have a patch management solution that scans for any patches that can be applied and then applies these patches, but it doesn't hit everything. It also doesn't find all misconfigurations and things like that. Arctic Wolf Managed Risk kind of fills in the gaps and makes us aware of vulnerabilities or misconfigurations that exist out there. It does an agent scan for software versions and compares them to what CVs are out there and lets us know."
"The most valuable feature for us is the support for testing Linux-based web server components."
"The reporting on the solution is good."
"All of the features are great."
"The solution is open source and has many small targetted penetration tests that have been written by many people that are useful. You can choose different subjects for the test, such as Oracle databases or Apache servers."
"It could be easier to use. They could present things in a little bit more ranked order rather than kind of giving you everything out there. It should highlight the really important stuff and make it easier to get to good rather than perfect."
"Better automation capabilities would be an improvement."
"The solution should improve the responsiveness of its live technical support."
"At the time I was using it, the graphical user interface needed some improvements."
"The solution is not very scalable, it does not provide any automation to be able to scale it."
"It depends on the company size quite a bit."
"The great advantage with Rapid7 Metasploit, of course, is that it's free."
